DuraSpace has a lot to celebrate in 2017. Our community-supported open source technologies continue to contribute to advancing the access and preservation goals of our member organizations and beyond. The DuraSpace hosted services team is onboarding new customers, while at the same time contributing to efforts to offer new technologies that provide full, hosted access to, control of, and protection for your content.

Austin, TX A cornerstone of the DuraSpace mission is focused around expanding collaborations with academic, scientific, cultural, technology, and research communities in support of projects and services to help ensure that current and future generations will have access to our collective digital heritage. The DuraSpace organization seeks a Business Development Manager to cultivate and deepen those relationships and partnerships particularly with international organizations and consortia to elevate the organization’s profile and to expand the services it offers.
Austin, TX How can we help?
That’s what we at DuraSpace hope to learn from you, our valued community. We have developed a 4-question survey that should take you no more than 5 minutes to complete aimed at learning more about how DuraSpace might better serve our community.
We have heard directly and indirectly from segments of our community that different types of technical assistance would be helpful at their institutions. As we head into 2017 we are investigating how we at DuraSpace might be able to help you achieve your goals.
Austin, TX We at DuraSpace are looking forward to a productive year in partnership with our valued community while also looking back over a decade of community development and action, open source technology advances, and organizational growth. We took a moment to dream big. Could we better integrate mindshare? What would thoughtful expansion look like?
